Here are some images and fact sheets about some of the starships which
have made appearances in the Symphony.
Gryphon's personal starship, an early-twenty-first-century-vintage
Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1312 Portsider-class light
freighter converted for asteroid racing. Often borrowed by Corwin
(whose own ship, the One-Hit Wonder,
was not yet spaceworthy before Roses in Springtime) for his
near-weekly trips to Earth.
First seen in the non-Symphony story Days of Miracle and Wonder; first
Symphony appearance in Christmas Rose.
The One-Hit Wonder
Corwin's personal ship, restored from a scrapyard derelict by his

Ship Scale Diagram
A quick little diagram showing the relative scales of some of the more
commonly-seen starship types in the UF universe, including a
couple of Symphony favorites. Labeled for your convenience.
Ship images bodged from merzo.net. (Yes, I've disagreed with
the source site on the size of the battlestar. No, I'm not going to
discuss it. That's how big a battlestar is in the UF
universe. Deal with it.)
